Saima Nasir, Our Industrial Designer

Saima Nasir is a student of industrial design. Lovely and jolly Saima always wanted a career in car, toy, modern furniture or product design. In her college she began showing interest in design and considered the field of Industrial Design. Professionals in this field design manufactured products including appliances, furniture, office equipment and other products. Since this field is broad, many students choose a specific concentration. Saima is concentrating on home appliances design.

Industrial design is an applied art whereby the aesthetics and usability of mass-produced products may be improved for marketability and production. The role of an Industrial Designer is to create and execute design solutions towards problems of form, usability, user ergonomics, engineering, marketing, brand development and sales.

Generally Saima’s work is a cross between an engineer and an artist. She study both function and form, and the connection between product and the user. She do not design the gears or motors that make machines move, or the circuits that control the movement, but she can affect technical aspects through usability design and form relationships. And usually, they partner with engineers and marketers, to identify and fulfill needs, wants and expectations.

She is studying in a famous European industrial design school. Working hard to learn and become an expert in this field. When Saima is not working, during idle time she gets online and chat with friends. Looking for some geek friends.
